We should start working of Sauron now. Any suggestions?

  • More sources
  • Portrayal in Adaptations
  • Other Versions
  • The Necromancer: History to Sauron#Third Age, Information about the name to "Names and Titles" (or a subpage, if needed)
  • Appearence
  • Inspiration? --Amroth 12:55, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
I would just start from scratch.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  14:06, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Main image

Should we change the main image? And, if so, to what?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  12:40, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

I like File:Diego Romo - Sauron, The Lord of the Ring.jpg[former link]. --Amroth 13:30, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't think that would work as the infobox image.-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:44, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
I woulden't recodnize the photo for sauron unless his name was right under it. --Seregdae 02:06, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
I see your point, but what is a recognisable image of Sauron?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  21:44, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
the one on the main page is good the ring on his finger and the armor do it for me because thats what people look for a image close to the one in the movie because thats what most people know to be sauron. --Seregdae

[edit] Sauron in Video games

Seems like Sauron is gonna have a lot of entries under adaptations! Would it be useful to add different sections, like "Portrayal in films", "Portrayals in video games", "Portrayals in other media", etc? --Morgan 12:50, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, we might consider doing that. Other media could then contain Lego, Role-playing-, board- and card games.
If somebody has a better image of Sauron in The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, please upload it! The current one is really bad. --Amroth 13:26, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
